Boxing Day at Market Rasen Racecourse
It’s the most wonderful time of the year and what’s more festive than a trip to Market Rasen’s traditional Boxing Day fixture? No, we can’t think of anything either!
With an afternoon of entertainment and an action-packed card, there’s no better way to blow off the cobwebs after a Christmas Day indoors than Boxing Day At The Races.
Approximate timings, likely to change closer to the raceday.
With an afternoon of entertainment and an action-packed card, there’s no better way to blow off the cobwebs after a Christmas Day indoors than the Rand Farm Park Boxing Day At The Races.
One of our most popular fixtures of the season, it regularly draws a bumper crowd for an afternoon of high quality racing. And as well as watching the action unfold in front of you, there’s an opportunity to keep up to date with all the drama at Kempton Park as we screen the Grade One Ladbrokes King George VI Chase and other races on our big screen.
Our feature race on the day is the prestigious Lincolnshire National over three and a half miles. Serving as Market Rasen’s answer to the iconic Grand National at Aintree, the Lincolnshire equivalent is a strong test of stamina and requires a classy type to win it.
The unique nature of the ‘regional’ National races offers specialist stayers an advantage and some of the top contenders regularly contest them as a consequence. Leading yards to have won this in recent years include Dan Skelton and David Pipe and with so much on the line, a pulsating finish is guaranteed.
We’ll have food stalls, festive treats and plenty of entertainment, meaning there’s something for everyone at our Boxing Day meeting. So switch off the TV, put down those leftovers and join us.
